Viber is a popular alternative to Skype and Tango for Voice calls, and runs on the same basis of giving you free calls and texts to anyone using the app (provided they register their phone number). We first heard that the app was coming to Lumia phones a while back and ti seems that earlier today the app hit the marketplace. As you can see from the screenshots above the app gives you the ability to chat and call from within the same application (there is a Viber messenger client available for WP but it doesn’t support VOIP), you can also use hte chat messaging to share images and location.
One of my favorite features is the ability to switch to GSM (normal cellular call) from within the same dailler, for example the person you’re trying to call isn’t answering his Viber so you can try the normal number from the same place. Viber automatically filters your contact list to find those of your contacts whose number’s are registered to a viber account and adds them to the “Viber Contacts List”. The app also supports group chats which would come in handy if you want to share an image with a large number of people, or plan a gathering. All in all Viber is a great app and definitely worth a look it if you have a Lumia device. Get it by scanning the QR Code below:
